We Are Moving – Again

I can’t believe I am writing this post and it’s a really hard one to write but we are moving. Again. After being in Nashville for only a year and a half, we are now making our way to Charleston, South Carolina. It’s hard to believe that in January of last year we moved here to Nashville from Chicago and now we are already moving again. With an extra child in tow! The reason we are moving is a common…

Nashville Moment: Gentry’s Farm

The other weekend we went to Gentry’s Farm in Franklin with some of my family. It’s been a long time since I have been to any sort of farm or pumpkin patch. It was the first weekend it opened and it was a great thing for the kids to do. I really liked this place and it’s a great fall activity for the family. I like that you pay at the door (kids under 2 are free!) and then that’s…

9 Reasons to Join a Running Group

I posted not too long ago about going out of my comfort zone. I joined a running group! More specifically, a training group for the Chicago Marathon. I found a group here through Fleet Feet. I loved Fleet Feet in Chicago and knew they had training groups and just group runs in general so I figured I would look one up here in Nashville. Lucky me, there are two (Brentwood and Green Hills) and they had a training group going…

Nashville Moment: Brunch at Biscuit Love

Brett and I are suckers for a really good brunch. It’s our favorite meal and we love finding a new spot to dine for it. We had plenty of places we loved in Chicago so we have been scoping out the scene here in Nashville. A couple weekends ago we decided to try Biscuit Love in The Gulch. Brett’s co-worker recommended it and I was definitely up for trying it out! I had a 17 mile run that morning on…

A Great 20 Mile Run (seriously)!

This is going to sound crazy but I had a GREAT 20 mile run this past weekend. It was the second, and last, long training run before the Chicago Marathon in THREE weeks! The last 20 mile run I did a couple weeks ago went okay but I was really pushing myself at the end. I was out of energy, hurting, sore, tired, and just wanted it to end. But for some reason, this last 20 mile run wasn’t as…

Weekend Workouts and Protein Shakes (and other fun stuff)

Saturday was a cross training day so I did the Upper Fix video on 21 Day Fix. And then I chased a toddler around… My training plan called for 12 miles on my long run day. I normally do long runs on Sundays and because we have a child, Brett and I haven’t been able to do these together… until now! My parents were able to watch Ady (thanks guys!) while we went out for a run. I forgot how…
